Martin Marietta Certified as WAIT Site

Martin Marietta Certified as WAIT Site

The W.A.I.T. certification recognizes several habitat protection & enhancement projects of Martin Marietta, including reclaiming land associated with a former slot mining operation across the street from the active quarry, and maintenance of quail and dove food plots.  Future plans include installation of bat houses, duck and bird boxes, and conversion of a portion of the loblolly pine to a long-leaf pine ecosystem.  An abundance of roads and numerous walking trails allow the site to be used for wildlife enhancement and educational opportunities for local schools, civic and church organizations.
